Dakota Pump submitted a proposal to upgrade the SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) system.  The well house will be upgraded to allow HOA (hand off auto switching) between the two well pumps.  A Rosemount magnetic flow meter will be installed for digital monitoring of the wells. 


Pump house number 1 will be upgraded to include a submersible transducer to better track tank water levels and avoid surprise water outages.  An HOA switch will be installed.


The green tanks on Lark Lane will have a radio link to pump house #2.  A pressure transducer will be installed to allow remote monitoring of the tank water levels. 


At pump house number 2 an HOA switch will be installed and modifications made to allow pump control and low suction cutout of the pumps (prevent them from running if no water is available).


The cost of the proposal is $10,180.   Garry inquired about warranties on the equipment and Ed will follow up.   Garry made a motion to accept the proposal and begin work.  The motion was seconded by Jim and the motion carried on 5-0 vote.


Bobby made a motion to accept the water report.  Garry seconded and the motion carried by a 5-0 vote.
